I went to lunch with my colleague today: 346K. I sat in the back today and the interior was firm and free of any stains/wear marks. If she painted the vehicle, it would pass for a car less than half it's age and mileage. I own a 2004 Accord, and at 108K, runs like it did when it was new. I wonder if I'll still have it for another 200K? Like most enthusiasts in this forum, the aim is to keep the vehicles I own looking and running right (whatever that is to the individual and for me, basically stock).
I only use OEM replacements on all my vehicles and pay particular attention to maintaining optimum performance. I explored replacement exhaust systems for my 2000 Ranger (sold it to get my Tacoma) about a year ago as that system was close to expired (it actually fell off during a funeral procession). At that time, I was doing the research to find an aftermarket system that would perhaps improve MPGs and provide a slight HP increase. What I learned is that many of the aftermarket solutions could reduce both in my attempt to improve both. Many advised me to get the OEM replacement especially since one of my requirements is that the system be as quiet as the stock system. I'm not a youngster anymore, so my aim is for a modest, non-attention grabbing exhaust. The kid next door has a CAI and an aftermarket exhaust on his Subaru and although he tries to idle down the street at 6:37 each morning, I don't need to be near a clock to know what time it is.
1990 Camry - nice! Camry back then were world-beater cars. Tops in sales and value. 22 years later, that vehicle is a good value...getting better with each passing day. Even today, the Camry is a top competing vehicle in its class and has stiff competition with the Accord and a couple new, up-and-coming manufacturers (Kia/Hyundai). Competition in that class has been strong for the past 30+ years. Trucks, Toyota has made a sizeable dent into the US marketshare. On the roads around here, you see old Rangers and Tacomas, fewer GM compacts, Dodges and Nissans. Tacomas especially hold their value and are highly sought. I plan to keep mine a long while so when the time comes, I'll replace with OEM replacement parts so long as they are available.
